Safety Benefits and Drawbacks of the Driver’s Knee Airbag

You may have heard tell of a little airbag that pops out of some vehicles at knee-level and cushions the driver’s knee. As one would predict, this device is known as the “driver’s knee airbag.” It’s been becoming more common in new cars, and both automakers and reviewers seem to enjoy mentioning its presence in vehicles.

But the idea of a driver’s knee airbag may sound a little ridiculous to some. Does the driver’s knee airbag actually contribute to safety?

Is the 2020 Hyundai Tucson good in snow?

2020 Hyundai Tucson Winter Driving

Winters here on the Delmarva Peninsula tend to be, well, unforgiving. One way to lessen the pain of the brutal snow months is by having a vehicle that can handle such conditions with ease.

Many of our customers admire the 2020 Hyundai Tucson for its capabilities as a compact SUV. But the question remains: is the 2020 Hyundai Tucson good in snow?

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson is good in snow thanks to its high-level safety features, cutting-edge technology, all-wheel drive availability and strong warranty coverage. In fact, Hyundai provides its vehicles with America’s Best Warranty.

Safety

Winter months are the most dangerous time of year for driving. That’s why having the latest and greatest in safety tech is a smart way to prepare for the snow. The 2019 Tucson was an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ (when properly equipped) and proud recipient of an NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating. The 2020 Tucson has a lot to live up to, but so far, it’s doing a great job; it also received an NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.

Cutting-Edge Technology

The 2020 Hyundai Tucson boasts an array of modern tech to best help you stay safe and take on the cold. Before you even get inside, the engine can be started by using the remote start feature (with climate control) through the Hyundai Blue Link Connected Car Service App. This ensures your vehicle will be all warmed up for you when you get in.

Other tech overlaps into the realm of safety. An available surround view monitor gives you a full top-down, 360-degree view of your vehicle when backing up. The back-up cam, meanwhile, shows what’s directly behind you while providing helpful parking guidelines.

No one wants to get lost in a blizzard. Thankfully, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson offers an available 8-inch navigation system to keep you on the right track. An available second row USB power outlet allows everyone to keep their devices fully charged in case they need to be utilized.

All-Wheel Drive Availability

All-wheel drive is available on every trim of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson. Though AWD has been oversold in the past as an all-encompassing solution to snow driving, it certainly can help drivers to get traction and prevent them from getting stuck. However, do note that snow tires have been shown to be far more helpful in winter driving, and we recommend them no matter what vehicle you drive.
